. president obama seems very conflicted about what to do, and i'm not sure i can really blame him, but more and more cities and states are blaming obama care for cutting their government worker jobs and work hours. this ill-advised health care law is likely to cut more private sector jobs than the budget-cutting sequester. all of that and more coming up on "the kudlow report" coming up right now. ♪ ♪ ♪ >>> first up tonight's speaker of the house john boehner says republicans will not shut down the government over obama care. cnbc's john harwood has that story for us. good evening, john. >> reporter: congress returns in just over two weeks to a huge fight over government spending and debt. with no agreement in sight between the white house and congressional republicans, both sides are trying to prepare the ground for the battle and the economic bus tour president obama today tried to rally public opinion against a possibility of a government shutdown aimed at his health care law. most recently there's been threats that we would shut down the government unless we agreed to roll back the
that there is one democrat who will not be talking about this issue and that is barack obama. and the left -- this is clearly a media dump. this was clearly an opponent, someone who sees ted cruz as a threat that delivered this information and has stirred it up behind the scenes. i think most people in politics recognize what this is. i enjoy the fact that people out there are highlighting that the republican party is a big tent. we have people from all walks of life who are stepping up to the plate with bold ideas and ted cruz is one of them. >> let's go to some of the things that have been said about the birther issue from the democratic side for those that said why didn't obama produce his birth certificate when he was asked. this is in part how some of the left reacted. >> how can he go from flat earth, i don't believe in evolution to -- >> why are you putting those words in his mouth? he never said he doesn't believe in evolution. those are your words, chris. >> that's how you would like to paint him to be. >> it wasn't an issue in the primary. >> look, let's look -- >> come on. what

. >> president obama spoke briefly to reporters shortly after kerry made those remarks. he was less emphatic, his message was similar. >> part of our obligation as a leader in the world is making sure that when you have a regime that is willing to use weapons that are prohibited by international norms on their own people, including children, that they are held to account. >> the team of u.n. weapons inspectors invest galting tigai attack have now left syria. pentagon officials tell nbc news that five guided missile destroyers are in the eastern mediterranean sea and nearly all of the targets have already been loaded into the warheads of some 200 tomahawk cruise missiles. a strike would be limited and tailored to syria's chemical weapons program. president f president obama were to order such a strike it will come without support from great britain. prime minister david cameron suffered a humiliate regbuk in parliament after they voted against military intervention. cameron says he will honor their wishes. france's leader says they are in, and he -- any american strike would also come without the
and the snub heard around the world. president obama abruptly canceling next month's planned meet with russian president vladimir putin. while it's not a complete return to the cold war, there is a chill in the air between the u.s. and russia. nbc's trace iie potts joins me m washington. the president's snub has many wondering, what happens now? >> reporter: next, betty, we wait to see what russia's response is. we'll have two officials right here in washington tomorrow. we'll monitor that for you. here on capitol hill, democrats and republicans are supporting the president's decision. >> and the first impression they get -- >> reporter: secretary of state john kerry and defense secretary chuck hagel are still set to meet their russian counterparts in washington tomorrow. even though president obama canceled his moscow summit with russian president vladimir putin. >> we were not at the point in our progress on a number of these issues where a summit at the presidential level was the most constructive step. >> reporter: there are disagreements over arms control and human rights but the last str
agree on except this. washington stinks. president obama's approval rating plum sed. 82% think the lawmakers deser s deserve to take off the month of august. congress is never popular. washington doesn't rate well on the popularity scale. people tend to personally like their own congressman. the reports we are getting back is that this time it could be different. i wanted to ask you, do you think some of the incumbent are in trouble? >> i talked to democratic campaign committee who handles the house. the average rating of approval for members of the house is about 88% or 89%. 70% now. i think the idea of a safe incumbent -- when i was in the business if you had an incumbent very rare they lose. if a wave if a big issue comes along a lot of people who think they are safe will be in trouble. >> anything we are learning in august 2013 tell us something about what will happen in mid term of november 2014. because president obama's numbers are not good now it's hard to get those back up. and then if you take the fact that most incumbents lose seats from their party in congress at t
is the hottest politician in america. narrowly besting hillary clinton and barack obama. but pay no attention to that poll because to the hollywood and new york set, the former first lady is still the hottest commodity out there. at least if their production schedule says anything about it nbc, whose cable network is a 24-hour commercial for the dnc, is planning a four hour mini series simply titled hillary. starting actress diane lane as mrs. clinton. conveniently, it only addresses mrs. clinton's life from 1998 to present. so, if i'm guessing, there won't be a lot on monica or travel gate, vince foster, or the rose law firm. cnn is planning its own film a feature-length documentary that will have a theatrical run in 2014 before it airs on the network in 2015. anticipating charges of bias, cnn insists that its film unit operates separately from its editorial department. okay. and i have not even mentioned the film rodham. are you counting these? it's throw now. that's produced by the people behind the popular twilight saga. that film focuses on hillary's early professional years including he
, especially in washington. everyone is on vacation. president obama is now in martha's vineyard though he'll be getting daily briefings from senior aides and he will spend some time, of course, preparing for what's likely to be a busy falling, dealing with among other things immigration reform and the federal budget. while our president is now playing golf and relaxing a bit. enjoying downtime, the norwegian prime minister has been taking on a second job. well, sort of. let me explain. he went undercover as a taxi driver in oslo during june because he wanted to hear what real people had to say. his exchanges with cab riders were caught on hidden camera. he wore a disguise and only gave away his real identity once the passengers recognized him. that's not really a great disguise if you think about it, just the sunglasses. a company helped him with the project and the video was posted on his facebook page. it is also going to be used as part of a film that he will use during his re-election campaign next month. the idea was to find out what people really had to say if he were driving a taxi
on obama care and whether it will lead to a government shutdown. >>> we begin with a fox news alert. syria has agreed to allow u.n. inspectors to visit the site of a reported chemical attack. the u.n. inspectors were already in syria to investigate reports of earlier poison gas strikes against civilians. until now the assad regime has denied the inspectors access to the site of wednesday's alleged attack outside damascus that killed hundreds. a senior white house official today says there is already very little doubt that poison gas was used. secretary of state chuck hagel saying the military is preparing for a range of potential options. >> president obama has asked the defense department to prepare options for all contingencies. we have done that. and, again, we are prepared to exercise whatever option if he decides to employ one of those options. >> elizabeth joining us live from washington. elizabe elizabeth, we're hearing from the administration. what are they saying? >> yeah, we are hearing from them this weekend. one senior official says the administration is continuing to assess th
everyone, from sandra fluke to president obama. that needs to change. america is better than. this and i hoechst my friends on the right are better than tattoo. all right. that's enough for tonight. that's it for tonight's show. i hope everyone has a great weekend, including you, bill. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >> eve of destruction. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm michael south america connish -- i'm michael smerconish. leading off tonight, hope or hopeless? despite a litany of challenges facing republicans, party leaders put on a brave face at this week's summer meetings in boston. their mission is a clear one, rally the party around the theme that worked well for democrats in 2008. that would be hope. >> what we have to do in a sense is be a party of optimism and hope. i think part of what we have to do in the era of president obama's disasterer is we have to get beyond being anti-obama, and we have to reconvince people you can have hope in america, that we can have a better future. >> hope for republicans nationally is
is be a party of optimism and hope. part of what we have to do in the era of obama's disaster is we have to get beyond being anti-obama and we have to reconvince people you can have hope in america. that we can have a better future. >> hope for republicans nationally is what the party cling to because at the moment it's all they've got. that much was evident in you read politico this morning which reported that the republican establishment sees the party on the national level as veering toward destruction. they report that an "it's almost impossible to find an establishment republican in town who's not down right more rose about the 2013 that has been and is about to be. they see this year as a disaster in the making even if most elected republicans don't know the it or admit it, the party's wounds are many and they're all self-inflicked. poe at this time cosays threats of government shutdown and debt default have ended all hopes of proving that republicans are not insane when it comes to governing. thanks to out of mainstream reactions on issues like immigration, voting rights, marriage equali
that this has been too much information provided by the obama administration. how have officials you have spoken to responded to that charge? theer: is difficult, criticism. i think it is hard to find merit with a lot of this criticism. the state department, since the lockerbie bombing, the pan am bombing in 1988, has been operating under a no double standards rule, meaning that goes tonformation that official american employees and diplomats serving abroad needs to be or has to be shared with the american public. if they have a specifically credible threat that can close an embassy, they are required to share it with the public. meritot really see much in the criticism. i know that some people have been complaining that the amount of specificity and the location identification of the closed embassies may have tipped off or did tipoff potential attackers and may have alerted them to how their communications were intercepted or compromised, but i think that in the interest of safety in, official americans and private americans were traveling, the state department is operating with an abundance of
that president obama mentioned the efforts, talking about the larger issues of college funding and those kinds of things. he also talked about spending efforts and efforts by the republicans on these matters. he the -- he made his thoughts known on it. [video clip] >> we had to make some modifications when it comes to long-term entitlement programs of a are here for young people when they are ready for retirement. we don't have an urgent deficit crisis. the only crisis we have is one that is manufactured in washington. it is ideological. we basic notion is that should not be helping people get healthcare and we should not be helping kids who cannot help themselves and whose parents are under resourced and we should not be helping them get a leg up. some of the proposals we have seen talk about even deeper cuts in programs like head start. even deeper cuts in education and support, even deeper cuts in basic science and research. that is like eating your corn seed. it is like being penny wise and pound foolish. if young people are not succeeding, if we are not spending on research and maintain o
opposition from the civil rights community that any person put forward by president obama ever has. it will be vocal and outspoken because he has chosen to be vocal and outspoken about racial profiling. i'm not sure that, frankly, he really believes in this. at the very least, he was against racial profiling before he was for if. he thought stop and frisk was dubious before he became its biggest champion. and -- >> well, he's definitely -- there's been a trajectory. there's been some movement. i'm willing to grant. ben jealous from the naacp. thank you so much. i appreciate it. >> thank you, chris. >>> joining me now, ryan grim, washington bureau chief for the "huffington post." ryan, you have ray kelly, head of new york city's police department, which is a big job, on sunday shows talking about stop and frisk as a central issue, and i'm just curious, what was your read of the political subtext of those appearances? >> you know, he's in a difficult position here because, you know, he's been floated now for a long time as a likely pick here. i know obama tends to leave people out th
that president obama is going to be speaking this week. spoken about race lately with the trayvon martin case. when he speaks about race, it's some of his most powerful speeches. he speaks very personally and he tends to get out some of the more wonaspects he falls into. we focused a lot on sort of racial equality and racial progress from the first march and a lot on economic equality and progress and as you've seen we're still very, very far from there. that a big part of the march. >> blake, you have sxhaut somewhat of a background in politics. i wonder from the standpoint from people around barack obama, trying to get him ready for this moment. he's going to be speaking where martin luther king spoke 50 years ago. how do you think he's preparing for this and his staff is preparing for him. it almost seems like an impossible challenge. >> this held up as one of the great speeches in american history and which is funny as a side note because we look at it as this iconic moment in american history and everyone rallied around how that was a great moment and at the time, this was a dissident ac
, a republican from north carolina. he should be the poster child for obama era conservatism in the house. he won a seat last year and already put his name on over a dozen bills to repeal parts or all of president obama's signature health care law. but when pittinger faced the locals at a town hall monday, he found himself confronted by tea party conservatives who demanded to know if he'd vote against any federal spending bill to implement obama care, even if that means shutting down the entire federal government. >> real quick easy question, this is what the tea party wants to know, will you vote with mike lee and meadows here to defund obama care? yes or no. [ applause ] >> a thoughtful answer? >> i want yes or no. >> no. >> that answer, as you can see, did not go over well. the crowd began pushing back against pittenger who said even if it passed the house, it would never pass the democratic senate and would never be signed by president obama. that only enraged the crowd even more. >> will you make a stand to get them back on board. >> do you think hair harry reid is going to pass it. >> it do
the president's health care plan. >> holding town hall meetings against obama care. >> now is the single best time we have to de-fund obama care. >> i don't think shutting down the government is not a good idea. >> we are standing up to take this country back. >> why can't the republicans all get on the same page? >> it is my honor to endorse him for the united states senate. >> chris christie's endorsement of steve lonegan. >> i am proud to have him as a candidate for the united states senate. >> lonegan has a chance to win. >> cory booker is way ahead in nearly every poll. >> why can't the republicans all get on the same page. >> we don't speculate on what we might find. >> they say this is a fool's errand. >> i'm proud to have him as a candidate for the united states senate? >> 99 nights ago at this hour, on this program an irs scandal was exposed for the first time. the real scandal is what the irs did in 1959 when it changed the meaning of the english language. when the irs decided that tax-exempt status could be granted even if an organization was not exclusively for the promotion of so
the hour on our agenda today. less than an hour ago president obama weighed in on the escalating violence from egypt in a statement from martha's vineyard. we'll get the tape playback from the news conference and we'll reair it in full. president obama's comments come on the heels of an attack by pro-morsi supporters. this is what is happening on the streets of cairo 24 hours since the arab spring upriding. supporters of ousted muslim brotherhood president mohammed morsi are not backing down. here's what we know right now at least 525 people are dead. more than 3700 injured in the des make of two protest camps and incredibly egypt's health ministry says those numbers are expected to rise. hopes for democracy are fading fast. the vice president stepped down. protesters said they'll rather die than give up the fight. the big question now what can the u.s. do? nbc's attorney correspondent is in cairo, bring us up to speed. >> the situation on the ground remains extremely volatile. within the last couple of hours there's been a massive protest on one of the government buildings on a cairo sub

"it's almost impossible to find an establishment republican in town who is not down right morose about the 2013 that has been and is about to be. they see this year as a disaster-in-the-making even if most elected republicans don't know it or ad it it requested. politico said threats of government shutdown and default and republicans are out. republicans have alienated an array of voting blocks. thanks to hyper partisan districts republicans have less to fear locally especially when it comes to their control of the house. nationally, however, it's a different story. jonathan allen is the senior washington correspondent with politico. sam stein is an msnbc contri
president obama to cancel joint military exercises with egypt that had been planned for next month, that was a rebuke of egypt's military leaders, but he also had a stern warning for egypt's interim government speaking from martha's vineyard on thursday. >> given the depths of our partnership with egypt, our national security interests in this pivotal part of the world and our belief that engagement can support a transition back to a democratically elected civilian government we've sustained our commitment to egypt and its people. but while we want to sustain our relationship with egypt, our traditional cooperation cannot continue, as usual, when civilians are being killed in the streets. >> for the latest on the situation now, we go to msnbc news foreign correspondent live in cairo. >> good morn, steve. a tense situation is unfolding. a mosque where dozens of supporters of the president seems to be developing. in that situation a gunfight has broken out outside the mosque and tear gas inside the mosque to try to get the supporters out. throughout the course of the early morning we
